    Here's an example. During the Jet's games they warned fans about the half time flashing. Of course, Jet's fans (who tend to be younger and consume the most alcohol) didn't comply. The next Jet's game the Sports Authority didn't allow the sale of Alcohol and the NFL nor the Concessionaire could do anything about it.

    I believe your right Lana, it is up to the Sports Authority, not the NFL.

    It's in the code of conduct to warn fans of shut off. As far as I know, the Sports Authority lays down the law regarding the building, and the Concessionaire who sells the alcohol has to comply. I will double check on this Sunday, I could be wrong but I've worked as a Level at the Arena with 6 Officers who work Alcohol Compliance.

    Actually the NFL does regulate the sale of alcohol, it's found in the fan code of conduct. For example, NFL policy requires no alcoholic sales after the 3rd quarter.

    @Romans. The NFL doesn't regulate Alcohol, the State, Sports Authority and the Concessionaire does. Without Alcohol sales, there probably wouldn't be a Stadium as Sports Venues rely on the Concessionaires rent as well as sponsors.(Pepsi, Ms. Fields, Carvel, Nathans, PaPa Johns and the big spenders like Budweiser, Miller et al.

    I see the talking heads at FOX Noise had a hard time trying to emasculate our POTUS, so they decided to invoke this is what it's like in Obama's America to the Masculine NFL fans.

    Having undercovers is nothing new at a sports venue.

    If you've only patronized these venues for a few hours, you really don't see what goes on behind the scenes because you're fixated on the game unless the drunken rivals start a pissing match in front of you. If the venue has inept security, you can bet their all on one side of the Stadium attending to one incident just for the sake of entertainment.

    "Heckling" is probably a subtle word for belligerent drunk cursing, yelling, spitting, spilling beer on you, getting too close, and possibly swinging at you b/c of liquid courage.

    And this my friends is why we can't have nice things!

    Another over reaction to a relatively small problem!

    I know of a college that bans tailgating once te game starts because they wanted everyone to buy a ticket for the game, but now they have lost revenue as tailgaters don't go at all...

    I don't know what the answer is to stop stadium violence. We gotta remember that the NFL is out to make their money and they won't do anything that will hamper their pocket flow. Like stop allowing alcohol on the premises, that's never gonna happen.

    Trash talking is part of the game. If as a fan you can't handle it and end up beating somebody to a pulp, then you should stay home. Fans are crazy and have that "this is our house" mentality. I don't think a few undercover officers will change that, but it will be interesting to see what happens. If you want to see a brawl, check out some of these soccer games...they usually end in riots

    So, violence is expected. If authorities want spectators to be safe, that's just PC gone awry?

    "Whitcomb said officers will be looking for people taking team rivalries too far by threatening, intimidating or harming other fans."

    The above story is a little thin on details--I doubt "heckling" covers the whole of it:
